    Tony Duncan

    Tony Duncan is of the Apache and Arikara, Hidatsa and Mandan nations. He incorporates both the Southwestern and Northern Plains styles of song and dance in his presentations. As leader of Estun-Bah, Duncan captures the true essence of Native America with the soft, and soothing melodies of the Apache cane flute as acoustic guitar adds a serene accompaniment while drums add the beats for his dancing. Estun-Bah blends traditional and contemporary styles to create an elegantly Native American music.

    Duncan is also an accomplished pow-wow dancer and hoop dancer. In the hoop dance Duncan creates many intricate designs inspired by nature such as the Eagle and the World. He is a four-time World Champion Hoop Dancer and is consistently ranked among the top ten in the world. He has traveled extensively across the United States as well as much of Europe and Asia.

    Duncan regularly performs hoop dances as part of his performances with Estun-Bah. He also performs with his family’s performance group, the Yellow Bird Indian Dancers.

    Estun-Bah drummer, Jeremy Dancing Bull
    Jeremy Dancing Bull

    Dancing Bull grew up in North Dakota on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation of the Arikara/Hidatsa and attends the tribal pow-wow every summer. Since a child Dancing Bull has been inspired by the sound of the Native American drum and has always been drawn to its heart-beat-like tone.

    He was also inspired by his late father Samuel who was a drummer beginning in high school and played in various bands throughout his life.  Dancing Bull inherited his father's skill to play any rhythm he heard as well as the ability to freely improvise on different drums and percussion. With his tribal roots strong in his heart, Dancing Bull is thankful to his family and friends for supporting and believing in him: "Music can connect us
    all. My family, my father and heritage are in my music. I enjoy sharing my music with others.”
